UCC Programmes

Current UCC Volunteer Programmes


Cork Volunteer Centre currently partners with University College Cork in the delivery of their two student volunteer programmes: UCC Works and the College of Arts, Celtic Studies and Social Sciences Placement Module.


UCC Works 

UCC Works is an exciting new award for students in which they receive formal recognition for the learning gained from their involvement in extra-curricular activities inside and outside of UCC. The activities are categorised into three pathways: Internship Pathway, Student Life Pathway and Volunteering Pathway. The award is open to all undergraduate and postgraduate students of UCC who satisfy the criteria. To qualify students must participate in an approved activity, complete a short ‘Reflective Report’ and submit their updated CV to the UCC Works team.

On the Volunteering Pathway students must complete a minimum of 40 hours voluntary work sourced through Cork Volunteer Centre between September and February. Awards are made by UCC and students’ participation in the programme is recorded on their Diploma Supplement. For more information on UCC Works visit the UCC Works website.


College of Arts, Celtic Studies and Social Sciences (CACSSS) Placement Module


This was a new work placement module introduced in 2013 for 2nd year undergraduate students of the College of Arts, Celtic Studies and Social Sciences. Students who are successful in their application to the programme complete a minimum of 150 hours voluntary work either throughout the academic year or over the Summer. We work closely with non-profit organisations to design roles which specifically meet the requirements of this module, and students are supported throughout their placement by the UCC Careers Service.
